Jason Koharik was born and raised in Bedford Ohio. And is now a working artist and designer based in Los Angeles, California. From a small studio in Echo Park and working from a timeless method, he has designed and handcrafted a sophisticated line of lighting and furniture. His work is inspired by the fluid beauty and natural forms of the Art Nouveau period, as well as an effort to create a unique silhouette that becomes an anomaly in an interior. Each piece takes on a one-of-a-kind quality. Working with natural materials such as wood, steel, brass and leather he finds a balance between furniture and sculpture.
In addition to his own designs, Jason Koharik is also a collector of interesting and rare vintage furniture and lighting. Pieces which he often transforms, with his own unique upholstery, hand stitched leather,metal and wood working skills, to create a piece of furniture which stands alone. Jason Koharik is a self taught artist and craftsman whose methods and work are always evolving.
